Travel Blogs from Long Island
We really should not believe these weather forecasts - the wind was due to die at the weekend but chose to disappear today as we are half way in transit to Long Island. Having left early again, We ended up motoring 70 miles in very calm seas but very tedious. Good time to catch up on some sleep and for Eric to polish the steel! He was so engrossed he forgot to wake Sally to tell her a large container ship was near by and we needed to change tack! Arrived at 6pm and settled ...
... water, and a slice of lime). We ate lobster, conch and papaya to our stomach's content. We swam at beautiful resort beaches and at secluded spots where we were the only ones there to snorkel with the fishes. Our experiences on Long Island are folded into memories of colour, beauty, warmth and kindness. Thank-you Mike and Marianne. Thank-you Bahamas. To you we toast: "May the Long Island sand flow slowly through your ...
Today is our last day before heading back to Nassau, then Newark, on to Zurich and finally arriving in Athens on Friday. We've spent our last couple of mornings working on and around Mike and Marianne's house, going swimming and snorkelling in the afternoon, and then finding a Happy Hour somewhere. Dinner tonight is take-away from Mario's--pumpkin soup, cracked conch, grouper, lobster, potato salad and cole slaw. A veritable Bahamian ...
Just a few things we have learned since arriving on Long Island in the Bahamas: Long Island is 80 miles long and 4 miles wide with a population of 4,000. Although Yuma is its original name that was used by the Arawaks, it was renamed Fernandina by Christopher Columbus on his first voyage to the New World in 1492, and got its current name of Long Island from a seafarer who thought it took too long to pass the island when he was sailing ...
... shallow obstacles. No more Cat-Island-style blasting along at breakneck speeds ¼ mile off shore! Connecting the waypoint dots along depths as little as 6 feet is the norm here. There are large areas far from shore that are dry or nearly dry at low water, or are unsurveyed shifting sand bores and, thus, are altogether unnavigable. In contrast, as if making up for this extreme, the southern third of the west side of the island is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Chez Pierre Bahamas Long Island
Having returned from canceling our full stay at Chez Pierre, I would just like to make sure you understand the reality of this resort. It IS remote !!! It IS private. And it IS a long way from anything else of interest . Plan on using a whole day if you are scuba diving,as our group was, plus add the cost of taxi or rental car. MAINLY, IT IS BASIC !!!!
The perfect escape
We spent 5 days at Pierre's resort on long Island and we enjoyed the quietness and excellent food provided along with some sightseeing.
It has been the best value for money spot we've seen during our trip.
Almost everyone enjoys a vacation. A vacation that combines a new place with a new mode of vacation can be great and it can be a disaster. A little research helps remove the unknowns and eliminate the disasters. My wife and I just completed a five day stay in a new place with a new mode of vacation. Her research was exhaustive. And still, we were not prepared. Yet, we are going back, anxiously, as soon as we can. It's that good!
A Gem of a Place
I stayed at Chez Pierre for 3 days in June and itwas a fantastic experience!! The food and Pierre the host was the icing on the cake. I'll be back!
Had planned to visit Long Island for 6 days, & found this resort on the internet & decided to try it out. Upon arrival the owner showed us to our cottages, which were ideal sitting on the beach & the rooms were very clean & quaint with a fantastic view of the beach & water along with great sunrises, sunsets, & sparkling moon on the water. The owner was very attentive to our needs & extremely helpful to accomodate in every way. The meals were FANTASTIC to say the least. It's an ideal place to get away with the beautiful beach, water, & quiet surroundings. Upon our 5th day there we were caught on the island by Hurricane Frances & unable to leave the island. Again the owner, Pierre, was most gracious to extend any help neccessary, along with helping to provide family & friends back home with our status of safety & well being. It was quite the experience to sit through a hurricane, but Pierre made every effort to make sure we were well taken care of in the mist of the disaster. I could not have been better taken care of anywhere else! Even after the hurricane it's still one of the most beautiful places on the island, along with the greatest food you ever ate, & would miss so much if you hadn't stayed there.
The Bahamas is not the cheapest place to visit and so when I saw Chez Pierre advertised on the internet I booked it more because it was the only place we could afford rather than any other reason! We were visiting the Bahamas for my sister's wedding on New Providence Island and were keen to explore more of the Bahamas than just the main tourist capital.
Best Week Ever!!!!!
My wife and I were looking for a complete getaway, we didn't fish, we didn't rent a car, we didn't do much of anything and had the best time of our lives. Anne and Pierre were incredibly friendly and our cottage was clean, comfortable and cozy. We can't wait to go back and lay out on the beautiful beach for hours and eat 5 star meals from Pierre's kitchen!
My wife and I just got back from an outstanding vacation( 9 day) at Chez Pierre on lovely and non touristy Long Island.We stayed at Chez Pierre and had breakfast and dinner there each night.
I read a an excellent review about Chez Pierre, as well as a poor review, so I decided to try it out.
